(Stillwater, MN) -- The images and videos of four Boston Marathon runners carrying another to the finish line have gone viral, and one of the four is from Minnesota. Mike Johnson of Stillwater and the other runners picked up the man he knows only as Adam roughly 300 yards from the end of the course. About 50 yards from the finish line, Johnson says Adam asked to be put down and summoned the energy to walk the rest of the way. He didn't think anything of the act, and says he was surprised when what they did to help another runner appeared all over television news programs yesterday morning.
